The Wortham Center for the Performing Arts’ 2019/2020 Season presents The Last Great Hunt’s “New Owner” by Arielle Gray and Tim Watts.

New Owner is sensitive new show for all ages about loss, friendship and new beginnings.

Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship — but Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and suddenly alone.

Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes us on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes.

The show will be held on Jan. 16-17 at 8 p.m. and Jan. 18 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., in the Tina McGuire Theatre at the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Asheville.

Tickets cost $32. Purchase them by calling 828-257-4530 or visit
